CONCURRENT RESOLUTIONS—OCT. 23, 1985

Whereas, Mr. Semyonov has demanded a visitor's visa to visit the Soviet Union so that he can reassure himself with his own eyes that his parents are alive and well: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate (the House of Representatives concurring). That it is the sense of the Congress that, in accordance with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, and the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe, the Soviet Union should drop all charges against Dr. Elena Bonner, restore to her and Dr. Andrei Sakharov the full rights to travel (domestic and international) and free expression, allow unimpeded correspondence between them and their relatives and friends in the West, and allow Alexei Semyonov permission to visit them in the Soviet Union. SEC. 2. The Congress urges the President— (1) to protest, in the strongest possible terms and at the highest levels, the blatant and repeated violations of the Sakharov's rights by the Soviet authorities, and (2) to call upon all other signatory nations of the Final Act of the Conference on Security and Cooperation in Europe to join in such protests. SEC. 3. The Secretary of the Senate shall transmit copies of this resolution to the Ambassador of the Soviet Union to the United States and to the Chairman of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Agreed to September 19, 1985.
